When we worked in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania a few years back, we went on a tour of haunted places around town one night. While I didn’t experience any of the ghosts firsthand that night, it was a pretty interesting tour. I learned a little bit about the history of the town and saw some places I wouldn’t have seen otherwise.
Here are some famous haunted places around the country where you can take a tour and look for spirits and Ghosts:
